Notes from Bob Isaacs: In this crossing of two New England greats, Larry improves a dance written in
his honor by adding the give and take.

The very long and good neighbor sequence is allemande left-pull
by right-pull by right-pull by left-pull by left-circle-do si do-pull by right-balance-swing-give and take.

Who doesn't like pirates? Not me. This dance was meant to be as raucous as I could make it, filled with stomping, spinning and swinging. It's fun.
